Autonomous and connected solar street lights irrigate the streets with light
This beautiful developing country has many roads that are not lit, especially in rural areas. The operational cost of infrastructures allowing the deployment of traditional lamps in a wired network for maintenance is too expensive. According to figures from Gabon’s Ministry of Water and Energy, the country’s electricity access rate averages 75%. However, this figure conceals huge disparities in electricity coverage between urban and rural areas. In rural areas, the electrification rate is around 35% compared to about 80% in urban areas. Most roads in the country have little or no lighting and the operational cost of traditional lamps is too high.
